Chamber Opera Chicago bring Persuasion to the Stratford ArtsHouse on Sunday

THE newly-adapted original musical of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, which first premiered in Chicago in 2011 and has been touring domestically and internationally since 2013, is set to open at Stratford ArtsHouse for one night only on Sunday, 24th July, before continuing on this year’s six-city tour with additional performances in Stirling, York, Aberdeen, Lyme Regis and London through to Saturday, 30th July.

These shows sell out fast, so don’t miss your chance to see it this time! Chamber Opera Chicago is a professional not-for-profit opera company devoted to making great opera and musicals affordable, presenting them in English in intimate settings and providing performance opportunities for Chicago-area singers.

The Chamber Opera Chicago Orchestra is distinguished by first-rate conductors and orchestral players, and has been highly praised by both critics and audience members alike. With award-winning designers and acclaimed directors from around the world, audiences can expect high-quality, innovative productions that bring opera to life.

Chamber Opera Chicago’s adaptation of Persuasion has often been compared to an operetta in the style of Gilbert and Sullivan. Add to that over 30 singers and a ten-piece orchestra, Regency costumes, beautiful projected scenery, and world champion Irish dancers from the Trinity Irish Dance Company, and you have an evening of spectacular entertainment.

Tickets cost £12 (concessions available) from the ArtsHouse box office on 01789 207100, or at www.stratfordartshouse.co.uk
